  1. I like the look in the middle,it is more adult and I am in my fifties and still wear pigtails. It is good especially if you are having a bad hair day.


  2. When I got married I could not find the time to go to the hairdressers wearing a pony tail and pigtails hanging at the sides was a lifesaver.


  3. Thanks for the advice,woke up this morning racking my brain on what to do with my frizzy hair,and I read this, I am definately going to try the two sided ponytail but i will join them together at the back and pin them in a neat bun.


  4. I am in my thirties and still wear ponytails,my boyfriend likes playing with them lol. It is good if you do not have time to do your hair.
